Jackson can work with you on your case to ensure that your legal rights are protected throughout the entire process, from the investigation all the way through the court of law.
Types Of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is classified as assault in Colorado, which can bring about serious charges including Felonies between Class 3 and Class 6, depending on the facts of the case. However, charges can also be reduced to as little as a Class 1 misdemeanor.
For the more severe felony domestic violence cases, there are required minimum mandatory prison sentences, which can be compounded further by other charges within the case.
Types of domestic violence can include domestic abuse, child abuse, battering, or family violence.
At the Law Office of Jill M. Jackson, we have most successfully represented clients through the trials of one of the more emotional and horrific forms of domestic violence: child abuse. Despite the negative associations with the term, there are some instances of child abuse where the result was not intense physical harm to the child, but rather they were put in a dangerous situation through neglect.
It’s important to recognize what you are being charged with and how the services of an accurate, fair, and dedicated criminal law firm can help you to achieve a dismissal, deferred judgement, or possibly even a substantial reduction of charges throughout a variety of abuse cases.
